. stay there. we'll be back to you a little later. >>> steven moore san editorial writer for the wall street journal. steven, i want to talk about the real stuff here, the real meat of this jobs report. before we do that, i think christine's point is very valid, and that is that there is a really reasonable and strong argument for smaller, more effective government in the united states, but these kind of conspiracy theories do nothing to help anybody's cause. >> i don't think there was a conspiracy behind these numbers at all. it's misty fiing, we're a little confused, ali, why there was such a big leap in one of the jobs surveys and a modest gain in the other. a lot of economists like myself are scratching our heads trying to peer at these numbers a little closer and figure it out, but i do not believe there was a conspiracy. >> but if you don't believe there was a conspiracy, take your best shot. it's not a number that barack obama can really crow about. i have been saying for a very long time for most people, kind of ignore the unemployment rate because it does kind of move around
said president obama. you did a good job. >> yes, okay. >> steven -- >> if we do that we'll have growth. >> steven, governor romney is a smart, successful businessman. that pa rt is not in dispute. it appears like his plan is to cutting costs and becoming more profitable by 2016. americans are not employees of the government, being president is actually very different from being a ceo. i smoke with bill daley last week. he worked in the white house and the public service. he made a good point. he said a ceo can replace 15 or 30 people even in a big company and change it entirely. the budget is predetermined, the board knows it's coming. a president just can't do that. within the constraints of what a president can actually do, really, how is life going to be that different in four years if mitt romney is president? >> you're right. 's like trying to steer an elephant, trying to change the direction of the u.s. government. that's part of the problem. isn't it? i agree with kevin. i'm a free enterprise guy. i do believe -- let me put it like this. this tax system is a pinto. what we need
cetera. i think that's the best way to go. >> steven, good to see you. steven lieb joining us. >>> she was the woman responsible for protecting your money during a financial crisis. >> we participated in the bailout and they did have a short-term impact in stabilizing the market, but that's not something i'm proud of. i'm ashamed about it. we had to do it, but it's not something i'm bragging about. >> four years later she's pointing fingers and naming names. who had your back and who didn't? that's next on "your money." ou a head start on your dinner. that seems easier sure does who are you?

want to ask steven moore something here. i think all three of us -- there are four ever us. forget my math. all four of us agree on this haut. why is it that's not why mitt romney says he can create 12 million jobs over four years. he talks almost exclusively about lowering taxes to spur job growth. i have a suspicion you actually agree with him on that. >> i know you've been skeptical of that number. i think it's very achieve scrabble. as you noted with that chart that you were showing even though we have had 5 million new jobs over the last four years, do you realize we're still about 4 million jobs short of where we were in 2007. so we still have a lot of ground to be made up. in fact we should be growing the labor force and employment by about double the rate that we are. if we pick up the pace we should be at and keep that for four years i really do believe 12 million jobs is achievable. my goodness we did that in the 1980s under a republican president, ronald reagan and a democratic president bill clinton. >> and gdp was 4.8%. 4.5% in one case. 4.3%. i can find economists who wi
